1948: Eddy Chandler, who starred with Ginger in the films “Carnival Boat” (as Fordon) and “Star of Midnight” (as Kinland Henchman), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 54.2007: The musical biography of Ginger’s life, “Backwards in High Heels”, opens in Manalapan, Florida, near West Palm Beach.
...REMEMBER - The LAST segment of the Palm Springs Antiques Roadshow will be shown Monday, March 27th - It MUST be the one with Roberta Olden getting a piece of Ginger's furniture appraised... so check it OUT!!! (It's a cool show anyway, so...WATCH!) ... On PBS... see local listings for times... AND, I have noticed that the shows may be 'streamed' from the PBS website at any time after they are aired, so... COOL!

...odds and ends...
...first of all, I have been out of pocket for the last few days, as my son (15 months old) had to have 'minor' surgery today, to 'open' a tear duct in one eye, as well as having his adenoids (throat stuff) removed. He is doing well, and zonked out in his crib tonight.
Also, Jean Howard of 'Discovering Ida' has found info regarding an episode of Dinah Shore, which featured Ginger AND Ida Lupino... no 'footage', tho... sounds like an OGRE assignment to me... :-) Go check it out at this link:
And finally, just a 'blurb'...or as you young 'uns call it nowadays, a 'Tweet' (well, if I was hooked up with 'Twitter'..why isn't it 'Tweeter'?) ...well, I was just reading the book I mentioned back on November 3, and ran across this passage regarding politics, which just stuck me as "Classic Ginger": "...There was talk in the papers (in the late 1940's) that Ginger was to run for Congress as a representative for California. I asked her about this and about what would be her platform. She smiled and replied, 'Cheaper and better ice cream for all!' - that was enough hint to me the rumour was nonsense."
Well, that's about it - just 'updating' and staying 'in touch' a bit... Sorry for the absence of any GingerPics... will try to make up for it in the next post :-]
Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
